John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 17:21

And all his fugitives with all his bands shall fall by the
sword
So those of his army that fled, and attempted to make their escape, when the city of Jerusalem was taken, as many as fell into the Chaldean army, which was round about the city, at least a great number of them, fell by the sword of the Chaldeans, ( Jeremiah 52:7 Jeremiah 52:8 ) ; and they that remain shall be scattered towards all winds;
and so it was, that such that escaped the sword were either carried captive into Babylon, or fled some one way, and some another, even into all parts, east, west, north, and south: and ye shall know that I the Lord have spoken [it];
the Targum adds, by my word, and will do it; who is the Lord God omniscient and omnipotent, just and righteous; faithful and true, as to his word of promise, so of threatening.
